As I’ve documented my mental health journey on this movie blog and my Instagram channel so I could share many therapies I’ve explored to help me cope during the Fall and Winter months. Diet, sunshine and exercise helps as well as social interactions with friends and other positive energy people. I also have numerous resources for self-motivation like surrounding myself with positive quotes, audio recordings, creative projects and using prayer, meditation and the practice of gratefulness.

Movies as medicine are still my top go-to solution that always revitalizes and sustains me through SAD. And some movies, like Groundhog Day and Edge of Tomorrow, reflects the annual seasonal loop I sometimes feel trapped in. Here is another film I recently discovered that sent a chill up my spine with this same message!
Dead of Night (1945)
The horror film, Dead of Night, is an anthology of short stories centred around architect Walter Craig (Mervyn Johns) who experiences a haunting déjà vu when he meets a group of people at a country house. There are five supernatural stories that are shared by amongst this group of people. Some of the cast includes Googie Withers, Sally Ann Howes, Frederick Valk, Roland Culver and Michael Redgrave.

It’s best you see this film without knowing anymore including how this connects with the theme of being caught in a loop. Just know that each of the short stories are thought provoking about strange, unexplainable experiences that many people have in real life.
If you feel trapped in some kind of recurring nightmare in your life remember to maintain your indestructible optimism and resilience. And remember that movies as medicine can help you through those times you feel trapped in a loop. Cinema can be one of your most powerful resilience resources!
